Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday began his day-long fast at the Andhra Bhawan in New Delhi demanding special status for his state. Ahead of that, TDP chief paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat. Naidu arrived at the Rajghat along with TDP MPs and party workers and then proceeded to the Andhra Bhawan to observe a day-long fast there.
The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister will sit on a hunger strike along with his ministers, party MLAs, MLCs, and MPs. As per an official statement, Naidu will also submit a memorandum to President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday. Naidu wrote a letter to the Prime Minister in which he said, ”A person holding the chair of Prime Minister should possess ‘Raj Dharma’.
No Prime Minister in the past had faced protests like you. Wherever you go, you faced protests. That is the evidence for your bad rule.” Sharpening his attack on PM Modi, Naidu added that it is basic etiquette to consult the Chief Minister before visiting a state.
